Is Steve Jobs 'Feelin' Good'?

Steve Jobs Feelin\' Good!

Rumors have been floating around for some time regarding Steve Jobs’ health. One has had to admit, in the last few public appearances at WWDC and even MacWorld back in January, his ‘Steveness’ was looking mighty ‘gaunt’. That said, a recent report in the New York Times puts that to bed.

According to John Markoff of the NYT:

“Rumors of Steven P. Jobs’s ill health have been greatly exaggerated. That is what Mr. Jobs, Apple’s chief executive, has been telling a number of his associates, even as concerns about his health have weighed on the company’s stock price. The latest flurry of talk was set off on Monday when, in a conference call after the release of Apple’s earnings, a company executive responded to a question about Mr. Jobs’s condition by saying that it was ‘a private matter. But in recent weeks, Mr. Jobs has reassured several people that he is doing well and that four years after a successful operation to treat a rare form of pancreatic cancer, he is cancer free…

People who are close to Mr. Jobs say that he had a surgical procedure this year to address a problem that was contributing to a loss of weight. These people declined to be identified because Mr. Jobs had not authorized them to speak about his health…

Mr. Jobs has told several associates, as well as some members of Apple’s board, that he is dealing with nutritional problems in the wake of his cancer surgery. Medical descriptions of the surgery state that in some cases it leads to weight loss and low energy…

The company has said that it has formulated a succession strategy in case Mr. Jobs left the company, but that it was confidential.”

I hate to speculate and comment on private matters such as one’s health, but seeing as this is GOOD news, I had to ‘share the love’. I sincerely hope Steve is indeed doing well, and is in great health.
